New Super Mario Bros U To Get Deluxe Switch Version

New Super Mario Bros U To Get Deluxe Switch Version


Luigi's Mansion 3 is also in development.

Most recently, Nintendo released smartphone incarnation Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp in October 2017. DS, Wii and 3DS incarnations followed, alongside a number of spin-offs. Save data backups have been a consistent request from Switch users since the console launched in March 2017.

One of the Nintendo Switch's greatest asset is its portability, so it seems odd to not allow its players to be away from Internet more than a week to play NES games. First-party games like Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Mario Tennis Aces will require the service for online play. The New Super Luigi U expansion will also be in the package.

The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles. Nintendo, in its FAQ, singles out Fortnite, explicitly mentioning that "some games, such as Fortnite, can be played online without a Nintendo Switch membership". A fun side-story to the Super Mario series proper so it'll be interesting to see what Nintendo has in store for this after the incredible Super Mario Odyssey.

The popular city-building game was made available on Nintendo Switch after the presentation ended.

Offsetting some of this good news about Nintendo's fast-approaching online service, it was recently revealed that in order to play the included NES games offline, players will need to sign in to the online service once a week and check in.

A host of Final Fantasy games are coming to Switch including Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, XII and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.
